In the interest of saving energy, the moon will be turned off tomorrow night between the hours of......
Early Tuesday evening in Japan (early Tuesday morning in the USA) we will be treated to a total eclipse of the moon. Europe and Africa will miss this one.
It does not look like the weather here in Japan will cooperate, but we'll see. In Japan time, the total eclipse of the moon will begin at 6:52 p.m. and end at 8:22 p.m. Tuesday, and the full moon glowing dimly in a red copper color will be visible from around 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the southeastern sky. The last total lunar eclipse to be visible from Japan occurred in January of 2001.
For skygazers in Fiji, the eclipse will begin at 8:52 PM Tuesday evening. In Hawaii, it will be 11:52 PM Monday night. If you're on Pacific Daylight Time, you'll need to be awake at 2:52 AM Tuesday morning (yawn!).
The times I've given are for totality. You'll want to be watching well in advance of that in order to witness the whole event.
For details regarding viewing the eclipse in your location see the Earth & Sky or NASA websites.
Following the eclipse, the moon will be returned to FULL in time for my mother's birthday on Wednesday.
